In the ten years since its launch, the BOCHK PRIZE has recognised many distinguished scientists in five fields: Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, Life and Health, New Materials and New Energy, Advanced Manufacturing, and FinTech. It is an exemplary platform to showcase Hong Kong’s strengths and global influence, aiming to become a world-class science and technology hub.

The PRIZE recognises individuals who advance world civilisation and inspire others towards building an inclusive society. In 2019, the prize has added a third category: the ‘InkluVision’ Art Prize supported by the Goethe-Institut Hongkong, which invites local artists to submit artworks with an annual theme of refugees and migrants, in support of Justice Centre Hong Kong’s work for displaced people. The three winning submissions receive a monetary prize, a certificate and trophies, while the shortlisted works are displayed at a thought-provoking art exhibition, an award ceremony and a charity auction supporting Justice Centre Hong Kong’s work for migrant workers and refugees.
